When a silhouette is demanding four figures on the resell market, it’s a wise choice for the brand to release some more accessible iterations to satisfy the masses. And Nike are doing just that with the Kobe Protro 1.
Next up, the Swoosh will rerelease the patriotically-hued Protro ‘USA’, worn by The Black Mamba during the 2006 FIBA World Cup. The baller sports navy nubuck across its upper, while a white Swoosh and mudguard, and red outsole, complete the team colours.
No word on a release date yet, but expect them to hit the court in coming months.
